We are planning to schedule job shadow opportunities after our Holiday break! Please fill out the attached form if you are interested in taking advantage of this opportunity so we can start to line up businesses to host you. The exact date will be scheduled later as we find availability at businesses, and there will be additional paperwork and parent permission forms after the job shadow is scheduled. You will be responsible for your own transportation, and this will be an excused absence as it is a school sponsored activity. Please see Mrs. Watts if you have any questions!!!
